“Many cultures have a version of dumplings; for Russians, they're called pelmeni. One of the ways they're often served is in a cabbage soup. We substitute easier-to-find tortellini in this healthy soup recipe with great results, but if you can find pelmeni, go ahead and use them.”


    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 medium onion, quartered and sliced
    • 5 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    • 4 cups prepared coleslaw mix
    • 10 ounces cheese- or meat-filled tortellini (about 3½ cups fresh or 2½ cups frozen)
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
    • ⅓ cup chopped fresh dill


  • 1 Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add broth; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Add coleslaw mix, tortellini, salt and pepper; cook until the tortellini are hot, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in dill.
